Bicycle Safety for National Brain Injury Awareness Month

 

Your brain is one of the most vital organs in your body. And injuries to the brain can have lifelong ramifications.

 

According to the Centers for Disease Control, 2.5 million people sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in 2010. Every day, 138 people die from injuries that include TBI in the United States, and TBI contributes to 30 percent of all injury deaths.

 

TBIs have been on the main stage recently in professional sports and the media, but anyone is susceptible to a TBI, even while going about their normal, everyday routine.…

Responsibility of Drivers and Pedestrians in Accidents

Every day people get into car accidents. Sometimes those accidents are with other cars. Sometimes they are with bicycles. And sometimes they are with pedestrians.

 

In 2013, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that there were 66,000 pedestrian injuries and 4,735 pedestrian deaths – more than 12 people each day – as a result of crashes with motor vehicles. And at least for the injuries, that number is somewhat conservative because many crashes that cause pedestrian injuries aren’t ever reported by police.…
